a very solid marker that this case, the chen case, was important to the united states. understand a couple of things. this is a broad important relationship between the united states and china, it's always going to be difficult and complex on a good day. then you throw something like this into the mix and it can have the potential for tensions although, up until today, it appeared the united states and china had worked constructively, intensely, to try to resolve this. go ahead. >> p.j., it sounds like someone is doubling back on the original agreement and/or the terms were not fully understood. chen guangcheng saying he felt he wife was going to be beaten to death if he didn't leave the u.s. embassy. it sounds like he at one point said that the u.s. had not -- was not pro active enough. that certainly doesn't look good. >> well, understand that mr. chen was trying to do something that was unique without precedent. normally the united states tries to work to bring activists out of china where they feel they are threatened. mr. chen specifically had the united states negotiate with
distrust and resentment of the united states can be traced to the mexican war. the mexican war also hastened the civil war. it might not have been fought if the mexican war had not opened the volatile slavery debate. now, the mexican war's often confused with the texan war for independence from mexico ten years earlier in 1836. the texas revolution is known for the battles of the alamo and san ha sin toe -- ha seen toe and the exploits of sam houston and davy crockett. the mexican war is known as polk's war. the 11th president, james k. polk, supervised it from its beginning in may 1846 to the treaty signing 21 months later. the peace treaty transferred 530,000 square miles from mexico to the united states, incredible territory. from mexico we obtained the future states of california, new mexico, arizona, nevada, utah and parts of colorado and wyoming. literally 42% of mexico's territory at that time. the major battles were fought at palo alto, monterey and buena vista, the gates of mexico city. always outnumbered, the americans won every major battle. sometimes, as in buena vista,
and ask about the united states. the united states is calling again for air strikes in syria to protect these innocent civilians. why is the president not joining them? >> well, again, to conduct military operations you've got to have allies and support in the region surrounding. syria is vournded by friends of the united states, turkey, israel, jordan, iraq. at some point in time, again going back to libya, we had bases in the mediterranean from which we could conduct air campaign close air support that establish a no-fly zone. in order to be able to do that in this context, you need to have access to bases. one of these countries is going to have to pony up the bases. again, that takes the kind of coordination and building of a consensus to get where we need to go where decisive action becomes more possible. >> you hear these leaders saying there is no plan b when we talk about syria. thank you. let me get to this here. >> do we have a verdict? >> it doesn't seem like we have a verdict. there's been a swirl behind the scenes, if you will. there was a earlier note that came right befor
information on the breaking news story, the united states with the help of allies foils a terrorist plot to bomb an air liner and an in-depth look at the key issues in the 2012 presidential election and president obama's report card on i am gags. plus, exactly six months from now, a new polling shows an incredibly tight race and the romney and obama campaign confront a pair of tough questions. >> we start with dramatic breaking use. new information coming in by the minute on a new terror plot foiled by the united states and its allies. it is said to involve putting a suicide bomber aboard an air liner. it was foiled and the u.s. recovered and is now studying the explosive device. let's bring in fran townsend who was president bush's homeland security advisor and also with us tom fuentes. fran, i want to go to you first. from your sources with he are hearing that this was an upgrade if you will. do you remember the underwear bomber, that this was a way to upgrade the technology into an ie d and explosive device. what do you know? >> just speaking to a senior administration official t
to cater to the libertarians. we are only one-quarter of 1% of the 169 million voters in the united states. the voters are looking for help. they are losing their jobs. they cannot get employment. the cost of college is far beyond what anyone can pay for. they cannot go into bankruptcy. the homes of parents are being foreclosed upon because of student debt. the small business has been stifled. a long that idea of small business is where we should be focusing. that is where i am focused. my first business was at nine years old when i had a paper route. i am a high-school dropout. i went to harvard law school. i a magna cum laude from long island university and it was tough getting into high school when you are -- tough getting into harvard when you are a high-school dropout. i have been through a lot of hard knocks but i have been waiting on tables, short order cooks, setting up tents at the bowling alley, delivering bulk and learning how to carry 10 bottles into arms. i still work about 18 hours a day. i could not even be here because i had to go to bankruptcy court for a client on a criti
station. he said three sthings, two of them were, it is very clear to the world that the united states has lost and that's why the united states as everyone knows, the united states is begging the taliban to come -- just sit down and negotiate with us. please. we know you've murdered thousands of americans. we get that. that's ok. just sit down with us. we'll keep releasing you murdering thugs if you just agree to sit down with us and talk. we'll even buy you a wonderful office in qatar so you will have international international prestige to spread whatever goodwill you wish to spread. that would be known, mr. speaker , the president would pay attention, that would be known as radical jihad. that is what they wish to spread. here's a news report today from foxnews.com from kabul, the u.s. has been secretly releasing captured taliban fighters from a detention center in afghanistan in a bid to strengthen its hand in peace talks with the insurgent group, the "washington post" reported monday. who in the world has ever studied history comes around and says we are releasing the murdering thugi
the state question is red or green, celebrating its 100th anniversary as a stake in the united states of america, protests all seven of our delegate votes for gary johnson, the next president of the united states. >> new york, home of the statue of liberty, cast the following boats, gary johnson 24, rice aid, carl pearson, one, and jim burns, one. >> the tar heels of the great state of north carolina respectfully cockboat -- respectfully vote hell no to amendment 1 and we vote rewrote -- 3 votes for lee rice and seven votes for gary johnson. >> mr. chairman, the state of oregon, whose government will not allow us to use it, cast one vote for karl pearson, 34 rice, an aide for gary johnson. >> the delegates from the commonwealth of pennsylvania, birthplace of the declaration of independence and the united states constitution and the state that rally kicked rick santorum's ass out of the senate casts two write-in votes for sam's loan, and enthusiastically cast nine votes for the next president of the united states, gary johnson. >> home of the independent man, rarely cast one vote for b
president of the united states of america. the president sets the policy. i am absolutely comfortable with the fact that men marrying men, women marrying women and heterosexual -- men and women marrying all are entitled to the same exact rights, all the civil rights, all the civil liberties and, quite frankly, i don't see much of a distinction beyond that. >> those words sparked a quick response, not from republicans, but from the president's own campaign. what the vp said that all married couples should have the same legal rights is precisely potus' position. that's exactly what david axelrod tweeted, so the vice president gets out in front of his boss on an issue that on the ballot tuesday in north carolina, a presidential battleground state. a biden gaffe or is it a trial balloon? the answer depends on who you ask, and we'll get much more into this debate coming up in moments right here on cnn. meantime, there's a major shift in the halls of power for a key u.s. ally. france's new president is a socialist. francois hollande beat conservative incumbent nicolas sarkozy in sunday's ru
is one of the most sought after speakers on this subject in the united states and his lectures are online or in many different places electronically if you want to look for them. stephanie mccurry, between andy and gary, taught for some years at san diego state and at northwestern and has been at the university of pennsylvania now at professor of history for eight, nine, maybe ten years by now. she was born in belfast. her family immigrated to canada. she went to high school in canada and came to the u.s. to graduate school. she did her ph.d. at suny binghamton. she is one of the most imaginative historians we have on matters of gender, race, class, among other things, about southern history and about american history. she -- her first book called masters of small world's about yoman households was a multiple prize-winning book and still rests on almost everybody's "ma yoman households was a multiple prize-winning book and still rests on almost everybody's s a yoman households was a multiple prize-winning book and still rests on almost everybody' abou yoman households was a multiple prize
to blow up a passenger jet bound for the united states. a u.s. counter terrorism official tells cnn the explosive device is similar to the one used by the would-be underwear bomber. just like that bomb, there one did not contain metal, which raises real questions about whether it could have gotten passed airport security. as of yet, the person who had developed that bomb had not yet bought a ticket. here's defense secretary, leon panetta. >> what this incident makes clear is that this country has to continue to remain vigilant against those that would seek to attack this country and we will do everything necessary to keep america safe. >> fran townsend is cnn's national security contributor, a member of both the dhs and cia external advisory boards. chad sweet is a former dhs and cia official, also the cofounder of the chertoff group, a global security firm. good to see both of you. fran, i know you've been reporting on this throughout the day. we're hearing now that there could have been this bomb and other bombs, perhaps. how close of a call was this? >> you know, the official i s
bombs so they understand the target and they're a close ally of the united states and this administration official stressed to me that this really was an international effort although they also stress that this bomb never made it to their knowledge near an airport or an airplane prior to coming into their possession as far as their investigation has shown, and it was never a threat to the united states, so that means one of two things to me, john. either this was an early stage, this bomb plot, or it may have been made inneither by the u.s. or a security service which is why they wouldn't fear it detonating. >> an intelligence success in keeping it from either being able to be used or keeping the bomber from buying a particularet and getting on a plane, whatever, and the question now is if they were developing this new technology what is it capable of and what have they learned? here is what the fbi says tonight. as a result of close cooperation with our security and intelligence partners overseas, annum proceed iz voo the explosive device designed to carry out a t
flight coming into the united states. that was foiled two weeks ago. the investigation is still unfolding. a short time ago we heard from white house chief adviser or counterterrorism. the big question how worried should we be that this bomb and others like it would not be detected by current safeguards. >> this i.ed was a threat from the standpoint of the design we've been able to determine and so now we're trying to make sure that we take the measures that we need to to prevent any other type of ied from getting through security procedures. >> so will ramped up vigilance mean new security measures again for u.s. travelers? a former assistant director of the fbi is in washington. good morning, tom. >> good morning, carol. >> a lot of people are about to board airplanes, are they safe? >> i think they're no safer than they were before all of this happened. the second thing i would like to add is there's nothing new in any of this. richard reid got on airplane with explosives similar undetected. the underwear bomber undetected boarding an airplane in amsterdam bound for the united states.
as a result of the economy. the unemployment rate in the united states is around 8% and in france, it is 10%. they have to find a way to get the euro zone out of this mountain of debt. the difference between sarkozy and hollande is that sarkozy and the german chancellor came to a consensus to cut spending. but hoeland says we need a growth plan. and that sounds good but you have to find money somewhere. what are you going to do? raise taxes? get money from the central bank? all of those are details that need to be hammered out. and uncertainty is an issue for markets including the u.s. markets, don. >> and the interesting thing. the americans want to know what about me? so it will affect the u.s. markets. but obviously when people went to the polls to vote in france they weren't thinking about the world economy or the european economy or the euro zone. they wanted their own country with those measures they don't like. that's what they went to vote on. >> look, you know what strikes me is i live in the u.s. and reporting on the french election and when i asked ordinary french people what is
qaeda and foiled the plot to blow up a united states bound airliner. the mole got inside access to a key bomb cell in yemen and we are told he gained the terrorists trust and turned on them. the new and sophisticateed underwear bomb not hands of the united states agent. this appears to an big victory for united states intelligence because this are few known instances of u.s. supplies infiltrating a terrorist group. and the spy is reportedly safely out of yemen now, but sources tell fox there could be more bombs out there. the suspected mastermind is a yemen-based bombmaker who set his own brother on a suicide mission to kill a saudi prince. with a device implanted inside his body. it is also suspected of a failed 2010 cargo plant and a failed christmas day bombing a year earlier, and this was an upgrated version of the bomb, with no metal, a bomb that, right now, is said to be not hands of f.b.i. experts at a laboratory in virginia and trying to answer a key question. could this have gotten past airline security? catherine is on the story like in washington, dc this on, and a spy helped

as president of the united states. hasn't passed a budget in three years. i'm interested in what it is the president has actually done other than give speeches that makes them believe he deserves another four years. my point is he's a person in love with the sound of his own voice. he loves giving speeches but he doesn't love following through on his promises. >> the economy is not great by any means but there have been millions of jobs that have been created when he took office about 700,000 or 800,000 jobs month were being created and there's been a steady job increase over these months. it's nowhere near where it should be but it is still a lot better than three or four years ago. >> but it's not better. there's over 560,000 people still not employed today that were employed four years ago. if we had the same rate of people that were actually looking for work in the marketplace, we'd be at over 10.5% unemployment. he said he's going to cut the deficit in half by the end of his first term? if there was ever a voek fjoke promise that wasn't even attempted to be followed through
through the auspices of the united states in an account other, that i would make a proposal at council to try to make available those proposals in a public way. i expressed that to the itu officials as well as giving an indication that we will be making a proposal. we haven't yet worked out -- it hasn't been agreed to by counsel and we haven't worked out modalities for doing that, but we are very aware of this issue and i think this is a process benefit by making available those proposals that people can see them. >> thank you. now, my other question is this, you can tell by virtue of the interest we have here today and in other places than in the u.s., there is beginning to be a knowledge about and concerned about potentially the proposals that could be raised. we've mentioned some of the countries from which there might need concern or proponents said the concerns that we have. but they just really briefly, around the world, either countries in which they are as united and are working the same way that the u.s. government has 13 to be prepared to address these? maybe you could just n

this to say. >> i do not comment on specific classified operations other than to say that the united states engages in a number of operations to go after al qaeda and their militant allies. their terrorist allies who would try to attack the united states. what this incident makes clear is that this country has to continue to remain vigilant against those that would seek to attack this country. >> we'll have the latest on this story at the top of the show. plus, debating gay marriage. it was a great case of tell me what you really think. yesterday vice president joe biden came out in favor of same-sex marriage. it's assumed he was speaking for himself, not for the president. opposing gay marriage is no longer a slam dunk for republicans. americans' attitude towards gays and gay marriage are changing incredibly fast. but, how biden's from the heart declaration will affect the election is anyone's guess. also, president obama kicked off his re-election campaign this wct weekend by rejecting the question, are you better off than you were four years ago? he said the right question is, where are

the effort? joining me now is james spidermarx. so, some u.s. lawmakers said the united states should take the lead and involve itself militarily. why is syria different than let's say libya. syria certainly had a greater population, a smaller piece of geography, therefore, it's a lot more urbanized and it becomes a very entangled and tough target to go against. unlike libya that had pocket of e resistance that were spread out and there seemed to be at some point, a unified opposition against gadhafi. so that answer to the question in terms of the difference between those two. in other words, it's a tougher nut to crack, a harder problem and would entangle us greatly. >> when you say something shouldn't be done, what is that something that should be done? >> well, clearly, what has to happen is the united, let's take it from the top and work our way down. united states is going to lose in this particular confrontation if russia brokers the deal to try to get assad to step aside. russia then is the peacemaker, russia owns the cards and have now caused this great con fill in syria to go away
